A fairly calm and uneventful day in the way of weather yesterday, tops of 4C and the sun shining with the runs freshly groomed.

Today, we’re in for an interesting morning on the hill. Starting with tops of 10C, though by this afternoon it should drop to about 4C. Clear blue skies and winds dipping up and down, at the most getting up to moderate, though a bit heavier up the top.

I’m afraid for the next week we’re in for some particularly disheartening weather. Though the sun will be out for the most part, we’re looking at about 30mm of rain tonight into Monday morning, and a bit of snow if we’re lucky. In this case, I’d take blizzards and zero visibility over this, any day of the week.

We should see some snow early in the week, but only about 10cm, then as the days go on the temps are set to just continue rising, with Thursday and Friday giving us more than a bit of rain… We can’t control the weather (yet), so here’s what we know so far…

Monday: moderate rain with light evening snow, calm skies & tops of 5C
Tuesday: snow showers, moderate winds & tops of -5C
Wednesday: snow showers, calm skies & tops of -2C
Thursday: cloudy with heavy rain & tops of 6C
Friday: more heavy rain… tops of 11C
